ModusLink Global Solutions™, Inc. (NASDAQ: MLNK) announced today that it will further adjourn its 2013 Annual Meeting to allow additional time for stockholders to vote on Proposal 2.

Proposal 2 would eliminate the classification of the Board of Directors and provide instead for the annual election of Directors commencing with the Company’s 2014 annual meeting of stockholders, which will be held after the fiscal year ending on July 31, 2014. The proposal is described in detail in the Company’s definitive proxy statement for the Annual Meeting as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 29, 2013.

During the period of the adjournment, ModusLink will continue to solicit proxies from its stockholders with respect to Proposal 2.
